Kids' Translations Collection
When you pledge your allegiance what exactly are you saying? When a flag is spangled is that good or bad? Does the Declaration of Independence promise happiness to all USA citizens? What is the difference between a militia and a military? What has made Lincoln's three-minute speech in Gettysburg so significant? Kids' Translations Collection answers these and other questions in a format that children will find simple, engaging, and memorable.

Each book addresses what it says, what it means, and the background story. There are also timelines, a glossary, lots of illustrations, photos, and even a "Why do I care?" section. A captivating addition to any history curriculum, if your children are planning on being USA citizens, this is required reading.

Awesome June 9, 2016
Reviewer: Jewel Kingsley from Green, OH United States  
My 9 and 11 year olds love these books. They're colorful and engaging and really help to explain their subjects in a way that is easy for a kid to grasp. I look forward to using them with my younger kids when they are ready.

Perfect Supplement March 4, 2015
Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
These books are bright, colorful, fun, and appealing to young and old. They take some difficult subjects and make them easy to understand for young ages....and some not so young ages! They are a great supplement to a regular history curriculum by zooming in on these 5 documents specifically in a way that makes it easy to grasp. I'm so glad I bought them!

We have not had a August 12, 2014
Reviewer: Amy L.  
We have not had a chance to read all five books yet but my son read one yesterday and was super excited to share what he had learned with his dad. I am having him read them on his own and I will read them with my 1st grader. These books are a fantastic, easy way for kids to learn fun facts about our American History.

Six out of Five Stars! June 1, 2011
Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
START HERE!  History has always been the most boring subject for me and thus hard to pass on to my kids.  I remember more from reading just these few books than I did from all the history I took in high school!  This covers the key things all our kids should know and is laid out in an easy, enjoyable format highlighting and explaining the basics!  What do some of the big words mean in these documents?  How do these documents and events effect us today?  How did these things come about?  Start here to lay a quick, solid foundation, and then move on to other things to expand and cover the details.  Written for middle elementary students, but I read them out loud with all my kids (ages 5 to 15) because it was enjoyable, a good start, or (for the older ones) a quick, good review.  Enjoy!
